Pick: Tampa Bay Rays -118 (Bryan Leonard)
Similar to the Angels, the Red Sox are a team that is used to playing in the postseason but will be sitting on the sidelines this year. They have bravely battled through tremendous injuries that would have devastated a weaker club. But now that Dustin Pedroia is out for the year the Sox have folded the tent. They have dropped 6 of their last 8 games with wins over the Orioles being the only saving grace from a complete collapse. Tampa Bay has taken 6 of the last 7 meetings in this series as they continue to run the Red Sox ragged. The Ray’s speed has been too much for Boston to compete with and the Sox just don’t have the same offense without their injured stars. Tampa continues to battle the Yankees for the division title while the Sox plan their early vacations.
Pick: San Francisco Giants -118 (Rocky Atkinson)
San Francisco is 77-61 overall this year and sits one game behind NL West Division leader San Diego, while Arizona comes in with a 56-82 overall record on the season. San Francisco is 6-1 this year as a road favorite of -120 to -150. San Francisco has now won 5 of their last 6 games overall. Arizona has lost 3 games in a row heading into tonight’s contest. San Francisco bullpen has a 3.35 ERA overall this year. Arizona bullpen has a 5.87 ERA overall this year and a 5.47 ERA at home this season. Tim Lincecum has struggled lately but still owns a 3.68 ERA overall this year and a 3.49 ERA on the road this season. I’m looking for Lincecum to break this slump here tonight. His last outing he did pitch 8 innings and got the win over Jiminez and Colorado allowing only one run. Lincecum is 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA overall vs Arizona since 1997. We’ll recommend a small play on San Francisco tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky
Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -121 (Jim Feist)
Last place Cleveland is a long way from home, with the third worst offense in the AL. Erratic Justin Masterson (5-12, 5.01 ERA) is getting too much respect with this betting line. Masterson’s start was pushed to Tuesday, as he had to go home to deal with a family matter. This could be Masterson’s final start of the season, as the club is mulling moving him to the bullpen to limit his innings count. Trevor Bell of the Angels has been very good, with a 3.63 ERA his last three starts and the Indians haven’t seen him in 2010. Play the LA Angels.
